hi
typhoid can be recurrent, untill & unless it is treated properly.
to know that the body is free you have to undergo the typhoid bacterial(salmonella typhi) titres in the blood & stool,
to be completely free you can go for the typhoid vaccination.
these pains are due to the after effects of the fever.
good nutritious & safe,hygienic diet,fresh fruit juices, will help you to be back to normal as early as possible.
all the best
take care
